Valentin Bianchi Red Bordeaux Blend Enzo Bianchi 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Bianchi family winery was founded in 1928 by Italian immigrant Valentin Bianchi and now covers 350 hectares of vineyard. It is now run by the third generation, headed by Enzo Bianchi. Until recently a sleeping giant that was dependent largely on the domestic market, they have undergone a gradual transformation and modernisation in the past few years. Cabernet grapes for Enzo are grown on the Asti Estate, in Las Paredes, situated 7km west of the city of San Rafael, Mendoza at 760 metres above sea level. This area is among the coolest areas of San Rafael, with sandy calcareous soils of alluvial origin. The Merlot and Malbec grapes come from the Doña Elsa vineyard in Rama Caída, an equally cool area with similar soils. This concentrated blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot has tremendous depth of colour, ripe red fruit perfumes with touches of cassis, black cherry and plums on the nose, and hints of spice and black pepper. Rich, ripe and well-structured on the palate, it has excellent depth and a long finish with flavours of chocolate, cherry, cassis and black pepper on the finish.
